This is the most work that I will have on display at any one time this year, so I hope you get a chance to stop by and see the show.

Oil and Water, Two Artists Two Approaches

"Oil and Water"
Two Artists Two Approaches
An Evening with Joe Kazimierczyk and Beatrice Bork

A Virtual Talk hosted by Morven Museum
Wednesday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m.
 

This is a first for me - I'm doing a talk about my work at Morven Museum along with Beatrice Bork. Bea and I have been friends for years and have done a number of shows together. Now we're teaming up for this talk.

This was originally planned to take place at Morven last year, but due the pandemic, delays, and rescheduling, it's now taking place online via Zoom.

We'll both be showing paintings that we've done over the years, while talking about our influences, inspirations and approaches to art. There will be a Q&A at the end for any questions that you might have.

The talk will be on Wednesday, May 19 at 6:30 p.m.
More information and a link to register can be found HERE on the Museum website.

We hope that you can join us!

It's been a strange year, but things are returning to normal in Lambertville and Artists' Gallery has resumed it's normal show schedule. This October I am once again showing with acclaimed watercolorist Beatrice Bork in a show entitled "In Our Nature".

Joe Kazimierczyk
"Ken Lockwood Gorge"
oil on canvas, 12 x 24"


In this show, I continue my exploration of the parks of northern New Jersey - the mountains, rivers and forests have been providing endless inspiration for my artwork. Beatrice continues to be inspired by her animal subjects which she paints with such exquisite detail and sensitivity to composition. 

Joe Kazimierczyk
"Yggdrasil"
on Allamuchy Mountain
oil on canvas, 24 x 30"

Most of my painting titles are self-explanatory but this one needs a little explaining. This is one very impressive tree. It's trunk is marked with so many wrinkles and scars, it feels really ancient. I was reminded of some comments I heard about my earlier tree paintings, and someone had mentioned Yggdrasil - in Norse mythology, Yggdrasil is an immense mythical tree at the center of the cosmos where it connects the Nine Worlds. The gods visit Yggdrasil daily. This tree is Yggdrasil. I am sure of it. (What a strange year it's been).

This is the most work that I will have on display at any one time this year, so I hope you get a chance to stop by and see the show. Due to the pandemic, there is no opening reception, but otherwise the gallery is open it's normal hours. If you need to see the show outside of normal gallery hours, please let me know and we can arrange something.

It's been a quiet year for art news since so many art venues have been closed, and exhibitions canceled or rescheduled due to the pandemic.

I was very happy to be one of 4 artists included in this exhibit at D&R Greenway, but the state went into lock down the week that the show was hung. The end date was extended a few times in hope that the show could eventually open, but alas... it's the longest running show I've ever been in, but no one has been able to see it!

The Greenway has some of the exhibit online for a virtual viewing here:
Trail of Breadcrumbs: Nature in Fairytales

There will also be a Zoom session with the artists, moderated by Curator Diana Moore, taking place this Wednesday, July 15 from 5-6 pm. 
Sign-up and get instructions for this FREE Zoom event by emailing dkilmer@drgreenway.org

Quietude - November at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ

"Quietude"
a 2-man show with Joe Kazimierczyk and Joseph Zogorski
Nov 7 - Dec 1, 2019

Opening Reception: Saturday, Nov 9, 4-7 pm

This November I'm teaming up with Joseph Zogorski for a 2-man at Artists' Gallery in Lambertville, NJ. Joe Zogorski is a photographer and I think his black and white nature photography works really well with my landscape paintings.

"Mirror Pool"

'Quietude' is defined as the state of peacefulness; stillness; tranquility. Joe and I both find our inspiration in the quiet and serenity of the world around us, and I think our work is the embodiment of quietude.

My inspiration continues to come primarily from the hikes I take as I explore the woodlands and mountains of north Jersey, and in this show I have a strong theme of rivers and streams. I never really plan a theme for my shows and I usually don't even realize that I have a theme until I step back and look at the new work I've done. This year I've definitely been fascinated by rivers and streams.

Joe Zogorski's nature photography focuses on the remaining rural countryside of Bucks County, PA and nearby parts of New Jersey. The lives of his ancestors and their stories of living in a community closely tied to the land help to inform his image making.

This is the most work that I will have on display at any one time this year, so I hope you get a chance to stop by and experience some quietude.
